I am in the hunt again for a new lab pup this spring. i have been doing alot of research on breeders and pedigrees. i am not looking for top end best breeding ever, just looking for a great upland dog. Last spring i bought a pup from a very respectable breeder but the pup turned into a dud. never eager to work, or run, or try to please. I ended up re-homing her to a very good home with small kids and shes been their best friend every since. so with that being said, what are some characteristics that might help me find the right pup for upland hunting and possible hunt tests.
any info or 2cents will be helpfull.
Thanks in advance everybody!!
